A typo on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Instagram account sparked a firestorm among her supporters, and had royal fans defend the Duchess against trolls who thought she had deliberately made the mistake. However, there is some evidence that has been overlooked that could prove that Markle did not write the post.
Here's more about the mistake why the earlier Suits star is attacked for, and the hint that might mean she's not behind it. Meghan Markle ” class=”wp-image-1312852″/>
The post caused a stir
If you have not heard of it on October 14, Sussex's official Instagram account contained a quote from the late Maya Angelou.
The message, which was meant to be uplifting, led to a series of followers calling the couple for a mistake in the quote. It said, "Every time a woman commits herself without knowing it, without asserting it, she intercedes for all women."
The typo is at the beginning of the quote with the words "women" like it is in the plural form but it should be the singular form "woman". Social media users who picked up on the mistake quickly commented on it.
Instagram is constantly reporting errors as expected. What was not expected, however, was that Markle got hate because some thought she had published the quote and purposely made that mistake.
"She probably wrote the typo to attract more attention," a troll wrote.
] "Did you make the mistake of intentionally attracting attention?" Added another troll.
While the duchess's fans considered the comments they attack as nothing more than "haters" who can not admit that they too make mistakes in social matters. In the media, the question arises whether Markle and Harry himself Write contributions.
Does Markle operate the Instagram account herself?
Since the couple opened their account in April 2019, fans are wondering who is writing their posts. Many assume that they have a royal social media account manager who posts on demand, but there are a few pointers that lead some to believe that Markle runs the account itself.
Some of her posts are written in US spellings of certain words, not British spellings. In addition, a specific post mentioned before the birth of Baby Archie donated and used a dollar sign ($) before the pound symbol (£).
But there seems to be a subtle way Markle and Harry let fans know if they write a contribution themselves.
Each post that has the initials added at the end is usually a sign that it was created by them. For example, a birthday mail to her niece, Princess Charlotte, in May had "Much Love, H and M xo". And on a birthday wish to Markle in August was after the message "Alles Liebe, H".
To distinguish who posted what with initials was something that Barack Obama had previously done as president. In his Twitter biography, it was made clear that "tweets are signed by the president -bo". If this is also a policy of the royal couple, then it's worth noting that Markle's initials are nowhere on the wrong entry, meaning that they would not do it would be the one who made the mistake.
